Gold Medal tool helps agents search for Covid travel rules

B2B operator Gold Medal has added a new tool to its website to assist travel agents advise clients about Covid-19 travel rules and restrictions.

The tool uses a platform developed by automated travel advice specialist Sherpa.com, which aggregates millions of data points from thousands of sources, including governments, airlines, airports, tourism boards, public forums and media outlets across the world.

The information is compiled and accessed via a simple user interface to enable agents to quickly and easily search for the Covid-19 testing and quarantine rules for outbound and return routes.

Gold Medal said the tool has been “very well received” by travel agents since it went live online this morning.

The operator is promoting it through its social channels and email communications to agents.

Kerry Gallagher, Gold Medal marketing director, said: “There’s bound to be some confusion around the different restrictions imposed by destinations around the world when the traffic light system is announced today (May 7), and we want to support agents in helping them cut through that and give clear, sound advice to their clients.

“We’re delighted to be able to make this tool available to them and take some of that potential stress away.”
